The Adelaide's are a bit odd. I bought them new at a NM Last Call. They were first grade and brand new but apparently somebody with a foot size difference had puilled a fast one at the regular NM store and switched out a shoe when he was trying on both the 9E and 8.5E UK sizing. So he took off with an 8.5E left and a 9E right, so they moved the pair to Last Call. So what I bought was a 9E left shoe and a 8.5E right shoe. As I could try them on and they fit perfectly I bought them. But the left shoe is just slightly longer than the right. Apparently most of us have one foot bigger than the other and I am a bit left foot bigger. Tomorrow I will get you new pictures and an inside measurement of each of the shoes.

Interesting. The left 9E UK shoe is 11 and 2/16s from toe to heel inside. The right 8.5E is 10 and 15/16ths toe to heel inside with the same tape. So only 3/16th more length in the 9E. For me, they both fit perfectly. Frankly I wear all the John Lobb lasts a bit better than the Edward Green lasts in the same sizing.

Here is another captoe but more in tan than chestnut you might consider. It is the Crockett & Jones Tellman for Polo. Being a Polo SKU it is sized in US sizing of 9D.

Yes, Good shoes (and suits) seem to be a thing of the distant past.

I certainly would consider it but the shipping and the communication is just harder, but not insurmoountable. Here is the updated list

hi

would you be kind enough to send me more pics (especially the shoes individually and the soles as well) of the JL vintage 2004. Please do mention the size as well.

Much thanks and regards
